The NWU Business School realises that an organisation cannot operate in isolation of its environment. Therefore, we strive to help uplift our community by providing courses on current issues such as HIV and AIDS for our business leaders. Furthermore, we implement our expertise in local businesses through our MBA syndicate groups to help them grow and to provide our students with practical hands-on experience.
